Punisher Series Coming To Netflix

29 April 2016 7:02 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

So Daredevil season 2 came along and pretty much made everyone believe that lightning can strike twice. Of course many fans like I were absolutely floored by Jon Bernthal’s performance as Frank Castle. Look I may get some flack for this one but as far as actors that have played this role I think his was the best. Well it looks like he did it right because Marvel has greenlit a spinoff of the character. Yes people we have a Punisher series. 

Marvel officially announced the news on saying Bernthal would of course reprise his role and Steve Lightfoot (Hannibal,Casualty) would be the showrunner and executive producer. Jeph Loeb head of Marvel Television said this.


                “We want to thank the fans who are clamoring for more of Jon’s stunning and powerful performance as Frank Castle from ‘Marvel’s Daredevil. Now combined with Showrunner Steve Lightfoot’s compelling writing, »

'Batman v Superman' is a truly unprecedented box office phenomenon and here's why

29 March 2016 4:29 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I asked a number of box office experts last week how those scathing reviews would affect Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's opening weekend gross, all of them agreed that the effect on the film's commercial prospects would likely be negligible (at least in the early going). And guess what? They were right! Despite a dismal 28% "Rotten" score on Rotten Tomatoes, the superhero film felled a number of box office records in its debut.  Still, 28% is a truly awful score, and so I got curious: what previous superhero films have an even lower percentage on Rotten Tomatoes than the Zack Snyder-directed mashup? After a quick scan, here's the abysmal list I came up with: Fantastic Four (2005) 27% Punisher: War Zone (2008) 27% Ghost Rider (2007) 26% Green Lantern (2011) 26% Blade: Trinity (2004) 25% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) 21% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (1993) 21% Spawn (1997) 19% Judge Dredd (1995) 18% Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012) 17% Superman III (1983) 17% Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie »

Five Actors I’d Like to See Get Major Roles in Big Films

27 March 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

There’s certainly no shortage of bad actors in Hollywood, and it seems that many major roles go to actors who either “mail it in” or who the public is sick and tired of watching anyway. I’m not saying that Ghost Rider would have been good without Nic Cage, but maybe it’s time for some lesser-known actors to get a shot at playing some major roles. There are five actors in particular that have been, in my opinion, pretty stellar in just about everything they’ve been in, but for the most part, they’re known individually as “that guy from show X”

The evolution of Spider-Man’s costume in films

11 March 2016 5:21 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks a the history of Spider-Man in movies…

With Spider-Man currently leaping into headlines around the Internet following his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the latest trailer for Captain America: Civil War [watch it here], a lot is being said about his costume. While it certainly evokes that Ditko style of the 1960s, there are some who think it’s the worst costume the character has ever worn. The animated eyes haven’t seemed to help matters [read the Flickering Myth reaction here].

So why don’t we take a trip down memory lane and look at other big-screen versions of your Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man

1978’s Spider-Man Strikes Back

The above image is taken from a TV movie which span off from the 1977 TV series The Amazing Spider-Man. The pilot episode was released as a feature film, but several episodes of the shows were re-edited together to create Spider-Man Strikes Back (a full two years before The »

8 Great Characters Sony’s Marvel Movies Have Completely Screwed Up

1 March 2016 5:10 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures

Sony Pictures may not hold the rights to as many Marvel characters as 20th Century Fox or even Marvel Studios themselves, but they’ve still done a bang up job of f***ing the vast majority of them up over the past few years. The Spider-Man and Ghost Rider franchises have greatly suffered at their hands, and for proof of that, you need only look at what’s become of them.

The rights to Ghost Rider have reverted to Marvel and he’s now left on the shelf, while Sony handled Spider-Man so poorly that they had no other choice than to make a deal with Marvel and give them creative control.

However, while each of these franchises may have been handled badly, poor business decisions made by clueless studio execs are nowhere near as bad as how the filmmakers in charge of these releases completely dropped the »

'The Punisher' Netflix Series Not Happening?

23 February 2016 10:12 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, just a few months after the first season of Marvel's Daredevil debuted, Netflix and Marvel announced that The Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal had signed on to play Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher in Season 2 of the hit series. Just one month later, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos teased the possibility of a Punisher spinoff series or even a movie. However, during a new interview with Digital Spy, Marvel TV president Jeph Loeb shot down rumors of this spinoff's development.

"I think that's something that people are speculating on, as opposed to something that's actually happening. It's certainly our hope that any of our characters will be embraced and that people want to see more of them."

Back in January, another report claimed that Netflix was reportedly "very close" to announcing The Punisher spinoff series, but we haven't heard anything official about the potential series since then. »

Daredevil season 2 trailer breakdown

17 February 2016 12:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




We took a close look at the Daredevil season 2 trailer to see what Marvel Universe goodness might be hiding within...

The first real trailer for Daredevil season 2 is here, and it's no joke. The focus is put squarely on Jon Bernthal as the Punisher for this one, and (if you can believe this) it appears to be even darker than the first one. I went hunting for Marvel Universe details in the trailer and found a few fun things.

Watch the Daredevil season 2 trailer, and then we'll get into some analysis...

Alright. Let's get going. Beware, because there are potential spoilers in this, so don't read if you're not into that sort of thing...

Unlike the first trailer for season one, the Daredevil season 2 trailer isn't exactly dripping in Marvel Universe references. That's not a bad thing. The trailers for Jessica Jones took a similar approach, and »

Ever wondered what Brad Pitt's hair smells like? Well, the answer's "like unicorns," if you believe Australian star Rebel Wilson. The How To Be Single actress gleaned this vital snippet of information at the recent SAG Awards in Los Angeles. Yet it wasn't on purpose: truth is Wilson was so starstruck by Pitt she literally didn't know what else to do. "I was too nervous to say anything so I just smelled his hair," Wilson said during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show.

Updated: 'Deadpool' Targets #1 Opening Over 'How to Be Single' & 'Zoolander 2'

11 February 2016 12:48 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

It's President's Day weekend, and last year it was the R-rated Fifty Shades of Grey dominating all things box office with a record-smashing $85.1 million opening that bumped up to $93 million for the four-day. This weekend brings a different kind of R-rated heat to the box office in the form of the superhero feature Deadpool, which won't likely top Fifty Shades' record, but that doesn't mean it isn't looking to perform in a big way. Additional new releases include the romantic comedy How to be Single and the fifteen-years later sequel, Zoolander 2, both of which will battle for a distant second. Arriving in a big way this weekend, Fox's Deadpool will hit 3,558 theaters with its sights set on settling among the top ranks of R-rated comic book adaptation opening weekends. The list is currently topped by 2007's 300 with $70.8 million, followed by 2009's Watchmen with $55.2 million. The film is looking at »

Netflix Developing 'The Punisher' Spinoff Series

16 January 2016 11:47 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last summer, rumors floated that now that they've established their first slate of Netflix programming including "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones," "Luke Cage," and "Iron Fist," Marvel was beginning to take a look at their Phase 2 slate of shows. Among the contenders to get their own series was The Punisher, Blade, and Ghost Rider, which, as you might've noticed, have all previously had big screen incarnations (albeit from different studios). Well, it looks like one of them might be on the way. Read More: The Punisher Will Reportedly Be The Villain In 'Daredevil' Season 2 TVLine reports that Netflix is developing "The Punisher" after seeing Jon Bernthal's performance as the character in the upcoming second season of "Daredevil." It seems to be in the early stages as no showrunner or writers have been revealed, but my guess is that they are starting the wheels in motion and perhaps waiting to see what audience response. »
